1951 Photograph from the first game of the World Series between the Yankees and the Giants showing game action from the first inning. Gil McDougald has dumped a single into right field and young rookie Mickey Mantle is seen scoring from third base. Filled with firsts, this was Mantle's first World Series, his first run, and it would be significant as he would suffer a devastating injury the next game! Photo has a cool newspaper photo on the back where this image was used in publication and this is a significant image in baseball history.
